My son turned one 10 days before Christmas, we wanted to play up the Christmas/winter theme with his first birthday party. We created a Winter ONEderland to help accomplish this idea.
My inspiration came from some printables I saw on The TomKat Studios site. I used the printables she created as the theme for this party.
Fun and budget friendly. I like to create DIY details myself and splurge on a few fun things like a great cake!

Favor Boxes: Pick Your Plum
Cake: Cakes by Andrea
My favorite party item was the CAKE! It was made by the same person who made our wedding cake. I've never had cake that good so whenever I can I love getting a cake from her. She makes the best cakes!
When I'm planning a party I always start with a theme and then make a list of things that I can do myself like decor items, invitations or whatever. And then I make a list of items that I need to buy and hire to do. I can not make a cake to save my life, they always turn out horrible so I hire those things out to some of my fave local bakers. I love giving them the business and helping their businesses.
